Tis the mood of the world, we guess? Director Leonard Menchiari has created an 8-bit game for your mobile device around the topic of Riots, hence the name, Riot Game.

Swiss sculptor and digital artist Fabian Bürgy creates conceptual gallery installations and other interventions inspired by mundane everyday objects such as holes, clouds, and tire marks. The resulting mix of sculpture, installation and digital imaging is simple and minimalistic but very interesting and visually powerful.

Last month, we showed you the 3D printing photo booth that was open in Tokyo, and we speak for most of you by saying it was a winner. Now, Hot Pop Factory has found a way to scan your head with an XBox Kinect and print your noggin out with a 3D printer, thus making a 3D model of you. And after you print your head out multiple times, and your friends' heads, too, you will have a sea of PEZ dispenser tops to share.

Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary-artist, Clement Villa, discovered images in which Google Earth projects abnormal landscapes beyond our reality. Since this discovery, Villa has been scouring Google Earth and collecting a number of these surreal landscapes. “ At first, I thought they were glitches, or errors in the algorithm, but looking closer I realized the situation was actually more interesting — these images are not glitches."

This is how we like to kick off the year, with a series of Out of Place objects constructed by a very clever Robert Rickhoff. Playground slides that lead you to oncoming traffic, volleyball courts on the autobahn, skate ramp crosswalks, all situations that are going to lead you to some sort of disaster. Rickhoff is based in Germany, and works as an allaround creative.

A bit of interaction for us today on Juxtapoz.com. Bubblebyte.org is pleased to present Mirage Machines, a solo exhibition of works by Athens-based artist Angelo Plessas. Since the late 90s, Angelo Plessas’ work has been strongly reflecting and mastering the language of the Internet through the creation of websites as artworks. So what that means for you, me, us is that we get to play and interact with Plessas' creations from the past few years.

Double-exposures had a good year in 2012, as the effect was used in abundance on a ton of great projects we have covered throughout the year. As we close it out, we just came across the double exposure works of Brazilian photographer Heitor Magno, who applies many of his double exposed imagery like a tattoo artist on flesh; the effect is seamless, stunning at times.
